Top 10 Favorite Movies of 2016

Now that 2016 is behind us, it’s time for me to reveal my favorite Movies of 2016. On a global level, the year 2016 will go down in history as a difficult one, where we lost a lot of talented people and there seemed to be an overall negativity in the air (thanks in part to the general election here in the U.S). On a personal level, 2016 was not only difficult, but sorrowful, as I lost my father to cancer. My dad loved movies, and every time we got together, we would discuss the films we had recently seen. Dad got sick early in the year, so we didn’t get to have our usual movie pow-wows.

My top movies are always of the blockbuster, superhero, scifi/fantasy variety, with some comedies sprinkled in, because I like to rewatch movies, so I tend to pick more uplifting titles as “favorites” — therefore, I’m not saying my list is of the “best” movies, they are just the ones I enjoyed the most and will likely rewatch to my heart’s content.

DVD Review: Rush ‘Time Stand Still’

Rush Time Stand Still Blu-ray banner

Rush – Time Stand Still
Blu-ray | DVD
Director by Dale Heslip
Narration by Paul Rudd
Rounder | 97 minutes
Release Date: November 18, 2016

Apparently, I’ve been in denial for the past year about Rush‘s retirement, because I watched the band’s new documentary, Time Stand Still, which focuses on their 2015 final major tour, and now I’m crying.

In this feature-length documentary, the Canadian trio opens up about saying good-bye to the band as they know it after 40 years of life on the road, most of which was to sell-out crowds around the world. While guitarist Alex Lifeson feels like it never seems like right time to end things, and drummer Neil Peart wants to quit while they’re ahead (and before his ability to perform is diminished), it’s clear that singer/bassist Geddy Lee was not ready to go.

Holiday Music Gift Guide 2016

Just like that, it’s that time again, where the holiday season is upon us and the mad scrambles down store aisles to find just the right gifts for friends and loved ones commences. It’s a yearly ritual that always seems to come sooner than later. It’s also a sign that the year is coming to a close, and of course there’s no question that 2016 will remain in memory and history as one of the most turbulent, challenging, and painful times ever seen. It is for that reason that the holiday time should hold even extra special positive emotional weight, as community and solidarity run high among people during this time, acting as sort of metaphoric concrete that fills in the gaps that division among many created. And music too, is an eternal, external, and ultimately internal healing agent for the soul, regardless if times are happy or sad, joyous or maudlin. Music also reflects those aforementioned emotions and more. Here’s some of the best released this past year that will for sure excite even the most hardened by the whirlwind of the times and warm someone’s soul like kindling a hearth on the coldest December nights.

Holiday Music Gift Guide 2015

The holidays have dawned upon us again and it seems as if the unveiling of them gets sooner and sooner each year. In a world that has seen one of its toughest and tragic years in 2015, the beauty of the holidays is more than a traditional, religious bent, but more about the communion of people and the act of humanity that seems to crawl from the cobwebs only during this time for some people. Regardless of the volume rate, whenever something can collectively bond people together with a sense of energy that runs placid and empathetic, there’s something to be said about the perennial emotion that gets reserved for this time of year. And of course with this year, comes the giving and receiving of gifts and good cheer. And as is my wont for the past few years now, I too have been rather perennial in my choices for key music items to bestow upon good friends and loved ones this time of year. So here’s some picks for this some of this years A-list offerings in music. As usual, this list goes to eleven.

Togetherness creators Mark Duplass and Jay Duplass with Conan

HBO’s new series Togetherness has just become my new favorite TV show.

Star Mark Duplass recently appeared on Conan with his brother, Jay Duplass, who co-created and co-wrote the HBO drama with him. Host Conan O’Brien asked the brothers about a scene in the third episode, “Insanity” (which aired on January 25th), where Mark’s character Brett tries to motivate his long-time best friend Alex (Steve Zissis, fellow co-creator and writer) by using Rush’s “Tom Sawyer” as inspiration, resulting in the friends doing a whole synchronized air-drumming sequence. The brothers, who explained that that part of the episode was based their real-life experience from college, got the host to join them in recreating the air-drumming scene.

Watch the video from Conan here below.

Happy 60th Birthday To Ron Howard

Ron Howard

Ron Howard, who is one of the few true artistes of a higher caliber in Hollywood and who has excelled as a virtual Renaissance man in that industry as an actor, director, and producer, celebrates his 60th birthday today.

It almost seems that for the entire world, there has never been a time that Ron Howard hasn’t been in our consciousness in one way or another. From his earliest starts as a pint-sized cute redhead who follows Robert Preston around in The Music Man, to being the son of the conscientious TV star Andy Griffith on CBS’s The Andy Griffith Show as Opie Taylor, to seemingly sprouting up overnight and becoming a tall teenager with multitudes of growing pains as one Richie Cunningham on the smash sitcom Happy Days (which just unbelievably celebrated its 40th anniversary earlier this year), Ron Howard seemed to tackle all of those aforementioned roles with a grace and an aw-shucks charm that never turned him off to audiences because of it — it was quite the contrary actually.
